Leading uninterruptible power supply (UPS) specialist, Power Control Ltd has been awarded the NHS SBS (Shared Business Services) Hard Facilities framework Management 2 agreement for the second consecutive time.

Following the first framework agreement which was in place for 4 years, Power Control has again been awarded a 2-year framework with the option to extend for another 2 years, showing our indelible commitment to providing the NHS and wider healthcare sector with ‘Standby Power Systems and Uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS)’ (LOT 3.2).

Power Control endured a strict tender process to obtain this notable framework status including mandatory general questions, specific equipment questions and a pricing evaluation alongside aligning our terms and conditions.

The company is very proud to be the only UPS provider to have scored the required percentage (%) to obtain a LOT 3.2 framework management agreement, which is a testament to our engineers, technical team, project managers, account managers, and the services and products provided by Power Control.  

In addition to this, Power Control would like to remind everyone that the company has been serving the NHS and healthcare sector for almost three decades with HTM 06-01 compliant secondary and tertiary backup power systems, and maintenance services.

We have a profound knowledge of the sector and have partnered with some of the most well-known contractors and contacts in the industry. Our UPS systems are supporting over half of the country’s operating theatres and millions of pounds worth of critical power equipment is installed countrywide to support other medical devices including medical imaging, life safety equipment, critical care equipment, and server racks, to name a few.


Samuel Rea, Healthcare Divisional Manager at Power Control commented:

“Healthcare is one of our biggest divisions at Power Control and with long standing relationships with some of Europe’s largest UPS manufacturers such as Borri S.P.A and Legrand and CertaUPS, we can offer healthcare customers highly reliable, small footprint and efficient UPS systems.

We also hold an IHEEM company affiliation and are on the NoE CPC (North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative), Estates, Maintenance and Engineering Services (HARD FM) framework too, making our services more accessible to the NHS.

We are very proud of the status we have achieved in the industry and take pride in the quality of service we deliver.”
